LOS ANGELES — Forget the fancy hotel and Hollywood heat. When Matt Damon and John Krasinski get going, they’re just guys who grew up with similar hometown references despite a decade’s difference in age.
There’s Aerosmith, of course. And Bobby Orr. Krasinski, 33, says his mother’s favorite photo of him is with the Bruins legend, who retired the year before he was born. Damon, 42, laughs knowingly at the mention of another former Bruin, Cam Neely. Regional accent, chowdah, Faneuil Hall, they’ve both got Boston in their makeup. They even share the same favorite movie: the 1982 courtroom drama “The Verdict,” set — where else but where they grew up?
